Top Tips For Renting a Car in Reno

  • Surrounded by lush parks and forests, Reno is a unique oasis that provides plenty of opportunity for outdoor exploration. Deciding to rent a car during your time in Reno will be a worthwhile decision, opening up the ability to discover the beauty of Lake Tahoe, the Sierra Nevada mountain range, Truckee River, and the valleys and desert of Nevada. By hiring a car and maximizing your time in town you will be able to explore the amazing natural landscapes and still check out the funky and eclectic nightlife of downtown Reno.
  • Reno-Tahoe International Airport is located only 3 miles from the downtown district, meaning you can pick up your rental car and be in the city in no time at all. Survey the best list of rental options available at Reno-Tahoe International Airport using KAYAK and organize your rental before you arrive. Major global rental companies such as Alamo, Avis, Hertz, Thrifty, and Budget have counters located within the baggage claim area of the airport terminal.
  • If you plan on traveling to the many mountainous areas surrounding the valley that Reno sits in, keep in mind that the weather at high elevations is unpredictable and thus the road conditions can change quickly. Ensure that you regularly check local weather reports and take extra precautions when driving on snow or ice.
  • Rush hour is a relative piece of cake in Reno compared to other major cities across the United States. While there is increased congestion on the roads between 7 am and 9 am and between 5 pm and 6:30 pm, most of the city is reachable within 45 minutes -- even if you are coming from the opposite side of town!
